New dates have been added!

Celebrating 31 years of bringing beautiful music to Cape May, the Cape May Music Festival presents classical, chamber, jazz and more each year. Tickets for concerts are now available. You can view a digital brochure with more information on each event here.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 crisis, we have decided to turn Cape May Music Festival into a Series! Instead of a 3 week festival, we are bringing you great performances throughout the latter half of 2020. All concerts and events have been updated with new dates. Keep checking back for any new updates that may appear.
